“Amazing Hotel”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Avanti for 8 days. Every thing was great, the service, cleanliness, and the location is in between great restaurants (Friendlys) and both major theme parks. Shaday assisted us and was so friendly and helpful. I completely recommend this place and if I return to Florida I would definitely stay again

I celebrated my birthday here (9/12/13 - 9/16/13). It was a last minute, for me anyway, change from Puerto Rico to come stay here. The deal was unbelievably good, $49.50 per night I couldn't pass that up. When I arrived everyone was very nice and helpful. I even got upgraded to a suite. I am not sure if it was because it was my birthday, because I was travelling alone, because they just were being nice, or any combination of the three. My room was clean, I checked for bedbugs - didn't find any, so that's always a huge plus! They finished renovations so everything was pretty new. The pictures they have on their website are accurate so you can check that out if you want a better idea. It's super convenient for people who don't drive, (like me). Many food options in either direction you walk, there is shopping areas too. The Florida Mall is very close by if you drive, or you can take the local bus service, Lynx. Like all Orlando hotels I stayed at in the past they offer discounted rates to the parks and shuttle service to and from them. The local bus service took me to and from the airport (MCO) also, if you don't mind the length of the trip (an hour) or you can pay for a taxi. I would definitely come back and visit alone or with a group of friends.

My fiancé and I stayed at Avanti Resort for a long weekend. The location is great, within a walking distance to many different restaurants, stores and entertainment. The front desk staff was absolutely great, very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean (this is a very important factor for me) and the bed was very comfortable. The housekeeping staff was great refreshing the rooms every day during our stay. Small fridge helped us to keep our drinks cool :). We will definitely stay here on our next trip.

Kona, we really appreciate you choosing to stay at Avanti Resort. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the new flooring in the rooms. Like you mention, it is actually cleaner than traditional carpet and is less likely to harbor bacteria or allergens. It is excellent that you were able to experience all of our amenities. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

I recently stayed at the Avanti in Orlando for a wedding weekend. It was convenient to all the local attractions, downtown, and was so clean, comfortable and welcoming. The lobby is so pretty (I love the pink walls behind the desk!) and everyone was super accommodating including Shaday (Spelling?) She assisted me when my key wasnt working and helped me get into a room before checkin time! I spent some time at the pool as well, which was big and I liked the sandy area--almost beach like! I had a few friends who sat at the bar and said the bartender was great too. But most importantly, the room was great! It is very clean, modern and spacious. I loved the cool green chair and artwork! A great spot for the weekend, I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: If I remember correctly, I think 3 buildings overlooked the pool--so you will be close by and have a...

We stayed at Avanti for 2 weeks in August and had a great time. The staff were brilliant,really friendly and helpful. Fantastic service.The best feature has to be the swimming pool, we loved as a family being out at the parks during the day and having evenings around the pool.Kids played in pool late in to the evening whilst we used either pool also, hot tub or sat around the bar. Great location, loads of restaurants on doorstep and shops.Rooms basic but served their purpose. Cleanliness okay. Would definitely stay again and have also recommended to friends . prior to coming we were concerned about other reviews that said building work not complete. Can confirm that we arrived 7th August and everything complete.

I am currently staying at the Avanti for two weeks. Having read the previous reviews, I was a little sceptical. I can honestly stay this hotel is a great place to stay. It has a clean fresh feel about it. The pool is fantastic and the on site cafe has everything you need including breakfast items.
Clearly the management are listening to the guest's comments. Since arriving they have installed fridges in all the rooms, which is great. There is also a coffee machine in my room, which I wasn't expecting. The bed is very comfortable, but can be noisy if you plonk yourself at the end of the bed. However if your aware of it, then its not an issue. The only negative I can really comment on, is the room would benefit from a chair or settee to add a little more comfort. Other than that I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Matt, thank you for staying with us. We are so glad to hear that you are having such a fantastic experience. Thank you for mentioning the Cafe that we have next to the pool, they definitely do serve some great breakfast items. As a management team, I can assure you that we listen very carefully to all of the feedback we get from our guests. Thank you for noticing that. Regarding the noise from the bed frames, our team has found a way to minimize that. Currently, our engineering team has fixed about 50% of the bed frames in the resort. We apologize that they had not yet gotten to yours. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back when you return to Orlando.
